      The Missouri Times, December 29, 2015

      KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Missouri State Council of Fire Fighters (MSCFF), the largest fire fighter union in the state, elected Sherwood Smith as their newest president Dec. 14.

      “It’s humbling, I appreciate it and I feel good about them having confidence in me,” Smith said.

      Smith has a long history as a fire fighter and as a leader in the firefighting community. He has served in the Kansas City, Missouri Fire Department for over 35 years and for 25 of those, he has been a captain. He has also earned the Medal of Bravery, the department’s second highest honor, twice, and he has been active in politics at both the local in Kansas City and working on campaigns for Noel Torpey, Sam Graves, Gov. Jay Nixon and Sen. Claire McCaskill.

      After losing an election for a seat in the Kansas City legislature in 2014, Smith will have a chance to influence policy and guide the over 6,000 volunteer members of his union at the state level.

      “We advocate for all first responders which includes prosecutors, EMS, nurses, fire fighters, so some of the things we’re looking for is things that affect public safety,” Smith said, making direct mention of Rep. Jeanie Lauer’s 911 legislation.

      “[It] makes sure that anyone with a mobile phone can dial 911, that’s probably one of our top priorities,” he said.

      Smith added that the upcoming session and the session to come in years ahead would offer a lot of opportunities for the union and that he was proud to be placed at the helm.

      “It’s going to be a big task,” Smith said. “We have a great team in place, and the previous president did a great job. But there are challenges still in front of us and I appreciate them having the confidence in me to think we can move to the next level.”

      The Missouri State Council of Fire Fighters is proud to introduce our newest communication tool; the UnionActive™ Mobile Application for Android, iOS Smartphones and Tablets. 

      This new technology works in concert with our website.  All this is required to use the Mobile App is to be a registered user with the MSCFF website.  We will soon provide all registered members a link to download the Mobile App via Google Play or iTunes Store thru our website Email system.

      If you are not currently a registered member we would like to encourage you to visit our website and register.  Once you have been approved you will have complete access to the latest information regarding Fire Fighter Issues within Missouri right in the palm of your hand.  Please allow 24 to 48 hours to be approved once you have registered.

      The Delegates at the 50th IAFF Convention passed Resolution #23 "Our Good Name" which applies to the use of the IAFF Logo.

      This resolution condemns the act of ordering or applying this union’s good name in the form of the IAFF Logo, the letters IAFF or the words “International Association of Fire Fighters” to any piece of apparel or merchandise that is not UNION made, or is made outside of the United States of America or Canada.

      Union Shop Apparel is one of the only organizations within North America that fully complies with Resolution #23.  All of the employees at Union Shop Apparel are members of IUPAT Local 820.  We invite you to visit their website and checkout their new Online Store.  They specialize in Custom Embroidery and Silk Screening.
